Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #1

May 152007

Corolla S 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


The original rack and pinion needed to be replaced after getting to the point that all the steering fluid was on my garage floor one morning. A dealership replaced it a second time also to try to eliminate an additional 'ratcheting' felt in the steering wheel, especially after making a tight turn. This still didn't fix that problem. It ended up being a wheel bearing on the front driver side found by a small town independent mechanic - thank goodness these guys/gals are still around.

Expected more from a Toyota, still have an '04 Tundra double cab that I love though. This is a great site, keep up the good work!
